Empty Nester, Keep or Consign the Furniture?

The day you knew would come has arrived. You got the text from the last of your kids still living at home;

” M, fnd apt. Gng to mv out tomrrw. Cmg 2 gt my furnture.” (Translation: Mom, I found an apartment. Going to move out tomorrow. Coming to get my furniture.)

You will be an empty nester very soon! At once, your head spins with the joy of having an empty nest. Plenty of clean towels, no one drinking straight out of the orange juice pitcher, no empty milk cartons in the fridge….one half the laundry, and on and on. You become wildly giddy, albeit briefly. You hear a voice scream inside your head…”what do you mean YOUR furniture, that’s MY furniture, buddy!

But wait a minute….take a good look at that bedroom set, Hard rock maple with a cowboy and wagon wheel motif. Seriously? You want that? O.K.Let’s assume you do, as my grandmother alway said, “there is no accounting for taste.”And sentimentality is one of the strongest emotions known to man.

On the other hand, maybe you are sick of the “Westward Ho the Wagon”: design style and you’d be happy to see it going out the front door.

Let eyedia walk you through this crisis…it may be a blessing in disguise.

If you want to keep Junior’s bedroom set, you’ll need to help him shop for his own furnishings. Eyedia can handle this challenge better than any other consignment furniture store in Louisville. Eyedia will give Junior the opportunity to set his own style, based on his personality, life- style and the chick magnet he thinks he is. We always have a wide selection of bed, dressers, night stands, lamps and rugs. He will likely want a cool living room. We always have great game-watching sofas, chairs and ottomans and rugs, But, may we suggest a glass top coffee table? Beers cans leave rings on wood!

But, if you can let the old stuff go…consider this, you’ll have a whole new room for yourself!!! What do you want it to be? Craft room? Office? Den? Or a new bedroom for Uncle Fred and Aunt Millie when they come for Christmas, or not. Eyedia can help you meet every need in furniture you might have. Our designers will assist you based on what YOU want, what YOU like. This is YOUR chance to have something for yourself. You know, like what you had before you had kids!

Come see us. Let us help you solve your furniture problem.

Here is the problem we can’t solve : M no fd cmg hm 4 dnr. Brgng a cup frnds. Lvu!

Translation: Mom, no food, coming home for dinner. Bringing a couple friends. Love you!
